Little Seahorse

last night i had the strangest dream...i sailed away to china/

When is a tampon a metaphor?
When it is tied to a high hand-rail on the 8:11am Limited Express Epping to Flinders street.

Srsly though, some dude kept getting hit in the head with it when the train lurched too jerkily. That was pretty funny. *holds smirk inside face*

I've had two dear, dear friends receive blows to their Uni. course hopes in the last week - I feel simultaneously awful for them, especially knowing how very hard they worked over the last year (and back), but I know it is no End Game. I just know something better is waiting for them - I do! Otherwise I'd be drowning in sympathetic sorrow - but I know they won't give up, because they just aren't like that.
Ain't gonna matter what you do - you'll do it like usual - with passion and drive, and genuine heart. 

So I've been training to be a Medicare Service Officer for the two weeks (come Friday), and the last couple of days have included some real & actual claims processing and enrolments! The computer system we use to process the claims is as old as Medicare (*hem1984*hem*) - so the cursor is a block and everything blinks in green and red. 'Citin, I can tell you.
Not so exciting is the prospect of BDO & Weekend with Feebz without $$ - I didn't get paid the many hundreds of dollars that were owed to me by my new employee today. Please, please let it have gone through by tomorrow..please! *needs Keypass & booze money & taxi money*

Made some real headway with Slash Zine. Must have it printed and ready for trading by February 14th. Gon' share a table with beautiful librarian friend, John, at the Sticky Subway Zine Fair.

It's been a hot and windy one.
Can't wait for the weekend. Big Day Out on Monday. Insane.

Oh, and are you allowed to dance at a goth club? I may be going to Cabaret Nocturne tomorrow night with a lady-friend.

I love you.

Writer's Block: Reading Aloud (& Dear Everyone)
One of the highlights of going to a literary festival is hearing authors read from their own works. What author, living or dead, would you most like to hear read?
Oh! Mr Stephen Fry, please!
I've been thinking about the ("national fucking) treasure" for a bit today - listening to his Podgrams while walking midst the Flinders St. hordes, basically doing blockies in the CBD, is really lovely - a loverly voice with which to expel his brilliant thoughts.So tomorrow morning brings another exam - I shan't whinge, it's the second of three I'm to be subjected to, so it's the Half-Way mark, which is relieving. I studied for a bit today, in the State Library, the squeaky bloody chairs hurt my bloody back but I'm not complaining, I promise. Simply blurting.

There's a new exhibition beneath Flinders Street, in the subway that is, Platform. There're loads of lovely big rusty machines, typewriters and phones and television sets, and cash registers etcetera - I stopped to look at them, also there was a handsome man playing a black ukelele(?) really wonderfully and singing  too - he's called Stewart/Stuart, and I gave him all the change in my tobacco-tin purse because he really delighted me, & reminded me about Rupert the violinist. Got chatting to a lady by the typewriters (it had a redandblack ribbon) - she learned to type on that sort (an Underwood -yay Fionn Regan!!!) and we talked about the lovely atmosphere of the NGV's Art Deco exhibition, gasping delight over the Cartier jewellery. She had to hurry along, but it was an excellent chat, really lovely.

Lunched with Ms Alex, and I fell in love with her some more. Lots of smiles and singing along to The Cure and sharing yuuuuummy salad (with zucchini!!!!!!!!!) and Yes! We WILL travel together next year..yeah? India? We'll be KINGS! Shotgun wedding in Las Vegas - certainly! Oh dear oh dear, I flirted a bit. A lot. Quite some. She did too, though! *swoonyswoon* hmm hurry up Graduation Ball! We're gonna be bewigged & maybe we'll hold hands too, I know we'll dance, she's a great dancer. Stop me (oh, uh-oh)..

It's nearly eight pee-ehm, at a net cafe cause I think my new House/Wilson addiction I broke the intarwebz @ home, plus I'm still tightropewalking towards that Realisation that's been approaching all the day. I'm on the brink I tells ya! Too much caffeine, p'raps.
I miss Russell Brands radio show.

OH! If you haven't seen the excellently wonderful video-clip for Wow Wow's Song by The Bedroom Philosopher yet, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?
A. Nothing - just go watch it now, it's great fun!

I might go now. Home?

If you're doing exams right about now - this means you too Phoebe, best of luck with the bastard things! Truly hope you achieve what you'd like to.


P.S Please oh please clicky clicky the House/Wilson link - I promise you it is Friggen Hilarious. I PROMISE!! What more do you WANT from me? *chest heaves*
Bwaaai! Love 'oo! xoxoxxooxxo

Today = LYK WAY Historical!!

Weepy with gladness & so very excited for tomorrow and tomorrow.

Writer's Block: I Love Lucy
I Love Lucy premiered today in 1951, and has been on the air ever since. Although Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s marriage didn’t last off the air, Lucy and Ricky are one of the great couples in television history. Who is your favorite TV couple?
Howard Moon.
Vince Noir.

Nuff said.

Your result for The 3 Variable Funny Test...

the Wit

(57% dark, 27% spontaneous, 11% vulgar)

your humor style:

You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you're probably an intellectual, but don't take that to mean pretentious. You realize 'dumb' can be witty--after all isn't that the Simpsons' philosophy?--but rudeness for its own sake, 'gross-out' humor and most other things found in a fraternity leave you totally flat.

I guess you just have a more cerebral approach than most. You have the perfect mindset for a joke writer or staff writer.

Your sense of humor takes the most thought to appreciate, but it's also the best, in my opinion.

You probably loved the Office. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check it out here:
